Nice - Nantes: Les Canaris remportent leur quatrième Coupe de France, le résumé du match NICE – NANTES FOOT. Nantes beat Nice by the narrowest of margins this Saturday, May 7 and won the fourth Coupe de France in its history thanks to a penalty goal from Ludovic Blas.

23: 21 – The summary of the match

The Canaries won their fourth Coupe de France after beating OGC Nice by the narrowest of margins (1-0). In the first half, the two teams went blow for blow but both lacked precision. Amine Gouiri tried his luck but his shot deflected by Castelletto flirted with Lafont’s right post. Ludovic Blas had also worried the opposing goalkeeper a few minutes earlier but Bulka had laid down perfectly on the ball. But apart from these two occasions, the first period of this Coupe de France final was tarnished by several inaccuracies, too many to confuse two solid defenses. But it only took fifteen seconds in the second act for this match to take a whole different turn. Quentin Merlin gets a penalty very quickly following an unsuccessful hand from Boudaoui tonight. It is the captain of the Canaries Ludovic Blas who is responsible for transforming the penalty with confidence and power (41e). Behind OGC Nice did not manage to come back up to par and in particular because of a man. Alban Lafont made an exceptional double parade in front of Gouiri and Delort. The young French goalkeeper was one of the big supporters of this success in the final while Antoine Kombouaré had preferred Rémy Descamps to him during this Coupe de France campaign. The Aiglons were only rarely dangerous to put even more contribution to Alban Lafont. The Canaries will have managed to manage the end of the match to win a new trophy 20 years after the previous one.
